Tuesday has a new name. It’s called “Toesday” at our house. 

What is “Toesday?”


Hump day. TGIF. Meatless Monday and Throwback Thursday.


What about Tuesday? Has Tuesday got a chance?


The answer is yes! Tuesday is no longer a distant contender for those of you who may have missed the memo…Tuesday is… “Toesday”, and it all started when my sweet husband offered me a foot massage after a long day.


It was a Tuesday night as we talked about the happenings of the day. I told him it felt like it should be Friday already, and he said, “I know, but just think tomorrow is Hump day, so just relax while I pamper these tired toes. He squeezed. He rubbed. He massaged and kneaded my feet until I felt a tingling sensation on the crown of my head. Wow! It sure felt nice. I was relaxed. I was so grateful for his tender care and no longer wished Tuesday away. It was like little hugs refreshed my feet, as he tugged each toe. (I had no idea he was so skilled and secretly wondered if he missed his calling as a podiatrist or reflexology therapist.)  


Upon complimenting his techniques, Ed smiled and said, “your feet need some love and after all its “Toes Day” for you, and from now on every Tuesday. It will be something nice to look forward to each week.”


What a blessing to have a caring husband. What a gift to soothe another from the weariness of the day.


Who will you share “Toesday” with this week?
